Women in STEM Policy

While women's participation in the STEM field has grown in recent years, men still far outnumber women. This gap is especially pronounced in the areas of physics, engineering, and computer science, where women earn only 20% of Bachelor's degrees.

This seminar offers college women a valuable opportunity to hear firsthand from women in science, health, and technology who are shaping our nation’s STEM agenda. Students will connect with senior women in the public, nonprofit, and private sectors.
